question, so i won't. >> iran's president, mahmoud ahmadinejad, shown here at natanz in 2008, blamed the cyber attack on enemies of the state and downplayed the damage. both the u.s. and israel maintain that it set back the iranian program by several years. what's impossible to know is how much damage the attackers might have inflicted if the virus had gone undetected and not been exposed by computer security companies trying to protect their customers. >> they planned to stay in that plant for many years and to do the whole attack in a completely covert manner, that anytime a centrifuge would break, the operators would think, "this is, again, a technical problem that we have experienced," for example, "because of poor quality of these centrifuges that we are using." >> we had a good idea that this was a blown operation, something that was never meant to be seen. it was never meant to come to the public's attention. >> you say blown, meaning? >> if you're running an operation like this to sabotage a uranium enrichment facility, you don't want the code uncovered. you want it kept secr

streets of tehran right now where citizens are blaming iran's president mahmoud ahmadinejad, for the currency free fall. here are the details. >> iran's currency down 40% in a week, leading to those propests today in the grand bazaar. it's incredibly difficult to manage a business when the currency is shifting so rapidly in such a short period of time. riot police shut down the protest, also shut down the illegal, yet long tolerated, money changers in tehran. in january of 2011, one u.s. dollar cost 10,000 iranian rials. yesterday, 35,500. big change for one week. the tough economic sanctions mean almost no bank in the world will do business with iran. hence, the country can't sell its oil because no one will handle the transaction. it's led to an extreme shortage of dollars. sanctions also manke it difficut to import goods. they're in short supply. both those situations lead to massive inflation. one commodity trader thinks the oil is falling so sharply today in part because of what's happening to iran. it means a regime change could be coming to iran and hence a greater supply of o

global news, iran's president will address the united nations general assembly today. mahmoud ahmadinejad is expected to defend iran's nuclear program which he insists is being used for peaceful purposes. many fear that the issue could drive israel to attack iran's nuclear facilities. israel has urged delegates to boycott the speech. that is just bizarre, it happens to be the holiest day on the hebrew calendar when this gentleman, and i use the term loosely, is expected to speak. meanwhile, thousands plan to protest outside the u.n. as he is speaking. and most western diplomats -- >> won't come. >> yeah, they turn around and walk out. but you really -- do we not really read stuff that he's -- you can quote him saying that, you know, iran's been around for 7,000 years and israel's been here for 70. it's not going to be here soon. it'll be us. a little footnote in history that it was -- which basically says -- >> we're going to wipe them out. >> we're going to wipe them off the map. >> the united nations, why do we fund the united nations is the question. not why does he get to talk? a lot of
